Added a 9.3x62 to the safe. Came set up with leupold 2x7 in Q- release mounts. Feels great in the hand. Quality is exceptional. Quick sight in with 2 shots touching at 90m. Session cut short by build up storms. Using 286g alaskan SP for Norma.
Hunted with it on Saturday, big day with only two pigs seen. Chris dropped one and we found three hoses on the way out. Overkill with the 286gr norma.
Impressed with it so far. Reasonable light and lively with the 286g factories. Length of pull is a little long for me so will require shortening.
Unsure of what projectiles I'm going to use. Woodleigh 232-250 grain or barnes 250TSX.
Very very happy....................

Very nice Mick!
9.3x62 might be a little 'overkill' on a horse to some......whatever works I say!

Hi 264,

Beautiful rifles, indeed!!! Congragulations!!!
Also like and agree about your selection of cartidges. My TWO FAVORITES right now. In fact, the 7x57 is my ALL TIME favorite since 1972. I am new to the 9,3x62, but it is my present favorite "médium bore".

Best!

PH

That Norma bullet.
Hard working and efficient.

I bet you're happy with the new rifle!

Great rifles Mick, the 9.3 in particular looks really nice. Some nice beasts as well in some great looking country. Well done.

Nice to see some results with the Norma Alaskan. I loaded up a bunch of ammo for my bro with those, at 2,200fps in his 9.3x57.
Won't see the results until after his Dec. trip for Elk.
